Peanut

Origin:

China and Argentina.

The peanut, although it is assigned more to the category of nuts, belongs to the legume family, since it comes from a herbaceous and fibrous plant, the pea family. So the fruit grows underground inside a pod.

It is native to America, especially from the tropical part of South America; where it grew wild. Since its weather conditions are a warm climate with lots of sunlight, being very sensitive to frost, it has been able to adapt well to cultivation in other countries; Today, China, India, Nigeria, the United States, Senegal, Argentina, Brazil and Egypt, among others, are the world’s largest producers.

The peanut stands out above all for its great contribution of vegetable proteins, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamins of group B, vitamin E and folic acid. These factors help to control stress and strengthen our immune system.
